DVTEL, INC., the video surveillance solutions provider, has introduced a reliable, intuitive and scalable network video recorder (NVR) for a full range of surveillance applications. The DVTEL Horizon NVR platform delivers the same reliability and high performance as the company's powerful Latitude Video Management System. Its technology and feature set is targeted specifically at smaller, efficiency driven surveillance deployments to view, record and playback high-quality video and audio.
The open-platform ONVIF Profile S-compliant NVR takes full advantage of DVTEL's experience and expertise in high-performance fault-tolerant systems with its proven VMS software architecture and IT/IP capabilities into a new easy-to-use scalable product. The new family of products allows integrator partners to tap into the growing small-to-medium-sized enterprise (SME) segment, and increase revenue opportunities and profitability by utilising simple and efficient deployment and maintenance tools that require minimal to no training.
Horizon's automated configuration, set-up and intuitive operator interface streamlines the deployment and maintenance of modular video surveillance deployments. Larger VMS counts of 100 cameras or more are managed by connecting a number of Horizon NVRs in parallel. Horizon also includes a sign-off report, a unique feature that delivers a post-installation overview that details the edge devices leveraged in the system.
Horizon is available as a basic NVR Server, an NVR RAID Server or an NVR Workstation, each pre-loaded with Horizon video management software. Several high-performance Horizon systems can be monitored from a single command centre. In addition, it integrates easily with a variety of third-party edge devices, and is compatible with DVTEL Quasar cameras and other DVTEL camera families.
“Our new Horizon NVR line is a high-performance, simple to use scalable appliance with minimal maintenance needs, designed for a variety of vertical markets and applications,” said Yoav Stern, President and CEO, DVTEL. “This newly developed technology is packaged in a line of NVRs that does not compromise system uptime, quality or high performance, and supplies the same solid dependability that DVTEL's enterprise-class systems are known for throughout the world.”
